Josh Brolin is rocking a flat top in first image from Inherent Vice

08.15.2014

The first image from Paul Thomas Anderson's INHERENT VICE has landed online, but unfortunately it's a scan from the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, and the picture isn't very big. At least we do get a glimpse at the excellent flat top Josh Brolin will be sporting as Detective Christian "Bigfoot" Bjornsen in Anderson's adaptation of the Thomas Pynchon novel. This first image also gives us another look at Joaquin Phoenix's Doc Sportello.

Book synopsis from Amazon:

It's been a while since Doc Sportello has seen his ex- girlfriend. Suddenly she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with. It's the tail end of the psychedelic sixties in L.A., and Doc knows that "love" is another of those words going around at the moment, like "trip" or "groovy," except that this one usually leads to trouble.

Based on what I know about Thomas Pynchon's book, Paul Thomas Anderson's INHERENT VICE won't be a straight up comedy, but the tone of the film will likely be a lot lighter compared to his other movies. The first trailer for INHERENT VICE will probably be released soon, and I can't wait to check it out.

INHERENT VICE also stars Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, Reese Witherspoon, Maya Rudolph and Jena Malone, and it will be in select theaters on December 12, 2014 before opening wide on January 9, 2015.

Very excited about this

I read the book and it's like a more over the top zany version of the Big Lebowski. P.T. Anderson is easily one of the best filmmakers out there. Super stoked to see another Phoenix and Anderson collaboration. Only wish Philip Seymour Hoffman were alive to be part of this.

You forgot to add a small name to the list. MARTIN SHORT! I've read a few reviews from sneak screenings that say "he steals the movie" and "is batshit crazy". Can't wait for this!

Phoenix for the next Wolverine? I know he'd never do it/be too old for it when it was time.

Early test screen reviews said this movie was like Zucker brothers Airplane funny. It's probably my most anticipated of the rest of the year

Why does Reese Witherspoon have to be in this. She is just terrible. Luckily Jena Malone is in this to counterbalance with her awesomeness.

Eh, she has sucked lately, but maybe she's scaling back and plus I have more faith in Paul Thomas Anderson to steer her performance...

She was phenomenal in Election, but I've never seen her do anything remotely as good as that since, though I did like her turn in Mud alright.

She's fully capable. I can't judge her on her bad choices of roles alone.

If PTA picked her, no way I'm complaining.

Her and Phoenix had great chemistry in Walk the Line. So maybe that had some influence when it came to casting??

If she proved herself to PTA, she's fine. Think ab some of the eccentric cast in magnolia and boogie nights, and this was all before Reilly and Hoffman were well known and respected. LUIZ GUZMAN? Didn't he even cast his own wife in this? She's been funny before, but I don't know about her acting. And Martin Short is in this, and apparently the scene stealer. He's an out of the box casting choice. Dislike Reese, fine (I have no feelings either way really), but you should know PTA is a

And Malone? I don't really care one way or the other for her either, but what has she done that shows she's a great actress? Or better than Reese?
